American Express and Hilton have four co-branded credit cards. These cards offer valuable benefits for those who stay at Hiltons with any frequency, so if you travel frequently, it’s worth having one of these cards in your wallet.

At the moment, all four cards are offering limited time welcome offers. While the business card’s limited time welcome offer has been around for several weeks, we’ve just seen new offers rolled out on the personal cards, and they’re excellent.

Limited time Hilton Amex Card welcome offers

At the moment, all Hilton Honors Amex cards are offering limited time welcome offers. Below I’ll cover the details, starting with the most basic card, all the way up to the most premium card.

Let me note that for the offers that include Free Night Awards, these are the standard Hilton Honors Free Night Awards, valid for 12 months, and which can be used at properties costing up to 150,000 Hilton Honors points. I consider these to be the most valuable hotel free night awards issued by any hotel group.

Hilton Honors Amex Card: 70,000 points + Free Night Award

The Hilton Honors American Express Card has no annual fee (Rates & Fees), and for applications through July 31, 2024, the card has a limited time welcome offer of 70,000 Hilton Honors points plus a Free Night Award after spending $2,000 within the first six months. As a point of comparison, previously the card offered 80,000 points, but without the Free Night Award.

Beyond the welcome offer, the Hilton Honors Amex Card features the following perks in the long run:

  • 7x points for eligible spending at Hilton hotels
  • Hilton Honors Silver status for as long as you have the card
  • Hilton Honors Gold status when you spend $20,000 on the card in a calendar year

Bottom line

At the moment we’re seeing limited time welcome offers on all of the Hilton Honors’ co-branded credit cards. These are excellent offers, in particular those that include a Free Night Award, given the amount of value you can get from that (up to 150,000 points).

If you’re looking for a no annual fee card, then the Hilton Honors American Express Card is for you. Meanwhile, if you’re looking for a card with stronger perks and an even better bonus, I recommend the Hilton Honors American Express Surpass Card or Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card. Lastly, if you’re looking for a business card, the Hilton Honors American Express Business Card is for you.

    Do you know of anyone getting approved for both the no AF hilton honors and hilton surpass cards on the same day?

  2. Trup Guest

    I have been in AMEX pop up jail for over a year now. I currently only have 1 card (Personal Plat) with them but no matter if i apply for a personal or bus card i always get that i am not eligible for the bonus before the application is processed. Even on cards i have never had. Any idea how to make that go away?

  3. Mark Guest

    Are the free night award signup bonus also given after the 1st year or is it just a sign up thing?

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Mark -- Only the Aspire Card offers an anniversary free night award with no spending requirement. For the ones that have it part of the welcome offer, that's only for the first year/upon getting the card.
